Scenes from East of the River

Avenue 50 Studio in Highland Park will hold a closing reception tonight for
East of the River – Images from the ‘Perdido en Califas’ Series, featuring 41 Polaroid photos by John Tapia Urquiza. The region covered by the exhibit extends from the banks of the Los Angeles River east to the desert. "The southwest prints evoke an era long past while the objects and scenes of East Los Angeles recall childhood memories," said a gallery press release. The closing reception and "Happy Docent Hour" mixer will be held from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Urquiza, who grew up in El Sereno, lives in Eagle Rock.
